What’s this about? Willing to give your view on the Labour Party, answer questions about your sex life, or test out the latest moisturiser? If so, it’s possible to earn £100s a year, without any special skill or talent. It’s all about stashing cash from filling in online surveys or taking part in focus groups.

The first point of call is read the full Survey Stashing guide. Then having found the best survey sites, this discussion is specifically to talk about feedback and tips for the survey site

YouGov

    I have been stuck at £48 for months - I do recall other people saying they found the number of surveys they received slowed down as they approached £50 as well!
    Yeah, whatever. I'm a grown up, I can take it...

    yes - it took 2 years - they paid promptly. Two years on and I'm on £26. They had to cut 30 staff earlier in the year, I read, because of the economic downturn, so not sure if there's going to be a bombardment of surveys any time soon...

    I've done Yougov for nearly 4 years. I've had one £50 cheque and I'm at the £40 mark now (must have been about one survey a week). They paid promptly.

    I prefer them to others I've tried because I've never started a survey, only to be disqualified - they seem to use your profile before sending e-mails and pay you even if you don't have to answer many questions.

    The trick with all these surveys is to remember that they're all ridiculous and exist only to make profits for the surveying companies and headlines for the media! They don't use random sampling so their results are completely meaningless - don't waste time thinking at length about your answers!

    I signed up to YouGov over a month ago and have not received anything by way of surveys to complete. Has anyone else found this?

    I'm with you there. I like the fact that when you get an email from YouGov, you know that you're going to get paid. I don't mind surveys that use a selection process beforehand as long as it's short and sweet.
